. chris, what was that shout out to john mccain and joe lieberman about? that seemed to make john mccain unhappy? >> he did his patented grimace smile. it was a standard cap and trade bill along the framework of what would later be passed by the house of representatives after president and killed in the senate because no republics republicans would support it. john mccain and joe lieberman in three sessions introduced bills to put a cap on carbon and that amount would have gone down year for year. what democrats tried to pass in 2009 and could not get done. it was a reminder to the republicans that there was a remarkable and in my time covering politics, lurch backwards. newt gingrich was haunted by sitting with nancy pelosi endorsing it. john mccain favored cap and trade. all of that has been undone and destroyed as the republican party has put this in this shrinking denial of the political strain. i think the president was trying to point that out and that's why john mccain felt uncomfortable. >> sitting between two democratic senators and wishing he wasn't. he said i am not going to u

of republicans along with him to kind of add to the work that john mccain has done, lindsay graham, and that's the position i have always had, that we have to stop illegal immigration at the border. but we have to deal sensibly and humanely with the people who are here. >> finally, let's talk about drones briefly. i can't help thinking when i see this drones debate, had it been a republican president, the democrats would have been all over this. and quite rightly. and i do think the democrats and president obama got off pretty lightly so far. what is your position on this? i mean, at what stage does the drone activity cease to be legitimate targeting of terrorism and become a kind of glorified, very brutal, very lethal fishing expedition? >> well, it has to be done very carefully. very uniquely. you have to be 100% sure you've got the right person and you're not making a mistake. i agree with you completely that if this had been done by george bush or any other republican, we'd be talking about hearings before congress. we would have some people talking about impeachment. for the life of me,
john mccain in 2008 and teamed up with barack obama. now he is the living definition of a republican in name only. there are other factors too. lindsey graham is leading the charge against hagel. have made him supremely vulnerable to a conservative primary challenge in 2014. there's no better way to shore up your standing on the right than to torment who wants to join the obama administration. israel is an issue too. over the past generation the republican party has moved farther and farther to the right on middle east issues to the point that its views are virtually indistinguishable. this they hope will entice jewish voters to give up their loyalties. it hasn't happened yet. but it's part of the same effort. what republicans have failed to produce, though, is any information or testimony that shows that hagel is unqualified or unfit to run the pentagon. this is a key point. members of the opposition party do not have to like the white house's cabinet picks. in fact,
